Abstract

Hippotherapy is one of the modern techniques of therapy and is used to relieve and treat the
symptoms of people with motor and neuro-motor deficiencies. As a result of using hippotherapy, the
effects can sometimes be observed, marking in the case of people with disabilities, both physical and
mental benefits. People can socialize much more easily, become aware of their body due to the
interaction with the horse and also gain more control over their own body, they communicate more
easily.
